In the past The Loyal Edmonton Regiment was made up of two or three battalions (see our history page). Today the regiment consists of a single battalion which consists of a headquarters, four companies and a band. All but C Company train and work locally in Edmonton.
A (Alpha) Company is the operational company. It is the senior combat fighting company in the regiment and the soldiers in its ranks have a wide range of training and experiences and many have conducted domestic and international operations.
B (Bravo) Company is the training company. It is the “Personnel Awaiting Training” company. It has a small, skilled cadre of infantry NCO’s (Leaders) ready to receive, advise and train the new recruits joining the regiment.
C (Charlie) Company is located in Yellowknife and is the first reserve sub-unit in the Northwest Territories and serves as an example of Canada’s commitment to maintain security and safe guard Canadian interests North of 60. The company does most of its training, operations and administration locally in Yellowknife.
Admin Company is our Command and Support Company. Its personnel and responsibilities vary from our Regimental HQ, Quarter Master, Band and more. This is a very important part of our unit that provides the senior unit leadership and support from day to day.
The Band is a brass and reed band and is one of the two Primary Army Reserve bands in 41 Canadian Brigade Group (see the Regimental Band page).
